Pinoy Relief’s mission is to bring the global community of talented musicians, entertainers, corporates, and everyday people together to aid the victims of typhoon Haiyan. One hundred percent of the net profit from the benefit concert will be distributed to programs that benefit the victims of Typhoon Haiyan through the Pinoy Relief fund and go toward reaching the organization’s goal of $5 Million for Phillipines relief.
“The Pinoy Relief Benefit Concert presents an important opportunity for us to come together to provide significant support to those devastated communities in the Philippines as they confront staggering short- and long-term issues,” said Tony Alvarez, Co-Chair of Pinoy Relief and Co-CEO of Alvarez & Marsal. “The communities affected are desperate to get back to their normal lives and become self-sufficient again. The funds raised will be instrumental in creating programs and grants to ensure that the victims of Haiyan receive housing, schooling, and get resources, like fishing boats, for their livelihood. We are honored to have our performers and special guests help raise awareness for our cause.”
Dr. Mehmet Oz, Host of the Dr. Oz Show, has said “The victims of Typhoon Haiyan have a resiliency that is awe-inspiring. We hope that this benefit will not only raise awareness to their spirit and will also reach our goal of $5 Million. The entire Pinoy Relief team believes that if we reach our goal, we will be able to make a real difference in the lives of those most severely affected by the Typhoon.”
